Haxe is a general-purpose language supporting object-oriented Unusual among programming languages, Haxe contains a type. Haxe is a feature-rich, high-level, Turing-complete programming language. It’s very generic, somewhat Java-like, but it also feels somewhat. While the modern programming language Haxe is well-known in some circles, many developers have never heard of it. Yet since it first appeared in

It’s a real programming language suitable for complex projects. For us, it’s just a question of keeping the JSON consistent. It’s an intriguing idea.

What is the language itself like? Haxe is strongly typed but the typing system can programmong subverted where required. We can help you either directly, or by putting you in touch with a consultant that will be able to help you understand how your company can benefit from using Haxe. Retrieved from ” https: Explore our support plans. Word on the street I can’t verify it is that it’s popular with people who write multi-platform games, Web-applications, and desktop applications.

Haxe is hxe learnt quickly and loved by developers coming from similar languages. Haxe is what JS should be: See the Haxe Language Features Introduction for a tour of some major language features.

Backed by the Haxe Foundationindustry sponsors and partners, it receives enterprise support and is sponsored and recognized by developers at a growing number of large companies such as Nickelodeon, Disney, TiVo, Stencyl and more. You can, and people often do, write entire program in Haxe but what we’re doing is just creating libraries for manipulating the JSON.

The best way to do this is to provide developers with standard objects-beans — in the Java world — that emit and accept the JSON, but languagf don’t want to write and maintain the bean code in five languages as things evolve.


But standard OCaml like Haxecompiles to bytecode or native.

Haxe can also run on two virtual machines runtimesNeko and HashLinkboth made by the Haxe Foundation. The Cross-platform Toolkit Haxe is an open source toolkit based on a modern, high level, strictly typed programming language, a cross-compiler, a complete cross-platform standard library and ways to access each platform’s native capabilities.

I have only ever used high level languages, so I am likely more ignorant than you are. What I programminng about it is that it give you the extra safety of a statically typed language, but it also tries to be as flexible and non-intrusive to your programming as possible.

Cross-compiling your code offers longevity to your code base that is not possible for other methods of cross-platform development.

Haxe: The ultimate cross-platform language – The freeCodeCamp Forum

I had to work around a few things, but very few so far. Its syntax has borrowed a lot from Javascript. The higher level the language, the easier it is to build complex code, but you give up something in speed and memory efficiency.

Languages vary in two major ways w. More features of the Haxe language: The discussion of types is continued in Type Systemwhere features like unificationtype parameters and type inference are explained.

The Cross-platform Toolkit

Join the DZone community and get the full member experience. The following program demonstrates “Hello World” written in Haxe:. The Haxe Toolkit provides a powerful cross-platform standard library that lets your code solve problems and have a codebase that is more versatile.

Rather than either relegating this material to the comments or attempting to correct and adjust my own text, I’m going programning inline comments below in italics. Some More Details Once more, I’m no expert yetbut there are some other points worth keeping in mind, so I’ll just dump some things I’ve come across, and you can investigate yourself.


This includes data structures, maths and date, serialization, reflection, bytes, crypto, file system, database access, etc.

Language Introduction – Haxe – The Cross-platform Toolkit

Most of the features of modern languages are included in Haxe. Functions are first-class values in Haxe. You can build desktop and mobile apps with JavaScript. Types introduces the seven different kinds of types in Haxe and how they interact with each other. Yeah, I just reread your post I can see what you meant originally. Queries are expressed in JSON format, and in a typical use-case, might have multiple languages at either end of the query.

Get the word out. Haxe consists of a high-level, open source programming language and a compiler.

It also has a very powerful and fairly straightforward and maintainable code generation features, which is a bit advanced but REALLY useful. It allows compilation of programs, written using an ECMAScript-oriented syntax, to multiple target languages. Haxe also supports generalized algebraic data types GADTs.

That sounds like another article! The Haxe programming language is a very modern, high-level programming language. The following example assumes that the metric system is the default, while a conversion to miles is needed for legacy data. The Haxe Compiler is responsible for translating the Haxe programming language to the target platform native source code or languabe.
